List of British, Commonwealth, and EBU champions that went on to win a world title

Decided to throw this together on a whim. Shout out to Wilkyboy for giving me the idea to put it together. This took quite a bit of time to put together! My only resource was BoxRec and my own eyeballs, so if you see anything that is wrong/inaccurate, don't hesitate to let me know.

List of champions that won the British, Commonwealth, and European titles, and a recognized world championship belt. They are also included if they won them in different weight classes.

OLD ERA:
Freddie Welsh [1905-1922]
Matt Wells [1905-1922]
Ted "Kid" Lewis [1909-1929]
Jackie Brown [1925-1939]
Rinty Monaghan [1932-1949]
Freddie Mills [1936-1950]
Jackie Paterson [1938-1951]
Randy Turpin [1946-1964]

70s-80s:
Jim Watt [1968-1981]
John Conteh [1971-1980]
Maurice Hope [1973-1982]
Lloyd Honeyghan [1980-1995]

MODERN ERA:
Paul Ingle [1994-2000]
Lennox Lewis [1989-2003]
Clinton Woods [1994-2009]
Nicky Cook [1998-2011]

CURRENTLY ACTIVE:
Junior Witter [1997-present]
Enzo Maccarinelli [1999-present]
Jamie McDonnell [2005-present]
Darren Barker [2004-present]

With Barker, Witter, and Maccarinelli nearing the end of their careers, I suppose the only representative still standing is Jamie McDonnell.
